I was recently offered the opportunity to review a Tonka Mod Machines System DX9 PICKUP Vehicle. I almost declined the offer believing Andrew, my 9 year old son, would not enjoy it. However, after I gave it more thought I decided to allow a friend of mine to review it. She agreed and told her son.

When the package arrived, I opened it and placed the Tonka truck next to the front door. I figured I would deliver it to my friend when my youngest returned from after school. 

Was I in for a surprise!

Andrew fell in love with the Tonka Mod Machines System DX9 PICKUP Vehicle! I was shocked to say the least. He normally doesn’t like any type of vehicle that isn’t battery operated and remote controlled. He says they will help him when he starts driving.

I explained that I was giving it to my friend Rebeca. He wasn’t happy when I told him my plan. He pouted and sulked, eventually giving me that puppy dog look (You know the look right? It’s every child’s most powerful weapon!). I succumbed. Thankfully, I did!

The Tonka Mod Vehicle has become his favorite truck. He loves customizing it and can spend hours playing with it. You know what he tells me? He says its better then the other trucks because its teaching him how to change the tires LOL Poor kid I don’t want to burst his bubble. He’ll realize soon enough that changing the tires on a car is not as easy as it is on his Tonka Vehicle!

I also have to admit I like the truck as well for a variety of reasons. I love that I don’t have to spend extra money on batteries. I also like that it allows him use his imagination. He can take it apart, change the tires, and imagine himself racing down a city highway or on a trecherous mountain road going full speed ahead. His Tonka adventures are only limited by his imagination!

The only downside is that now I have to buy Rebeca’s son his very own Tonka Mod Machines System DX9 PICKUP Vehicle since I promised!  Yet I don’t regret it!  After seeing his joy, I have to say  it’s worth it!
